A superior culture cannot permit its foundations to be poisoned and destroyed

“If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” ~ Psalm 11:3

It doesn’t take much imagination to see the similarities between the liberals and conservatives of America 150 years ago and those of today.

Nor does it take much imagination to see the similar storm that is coming upon us.

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” ~ Jesus (John 10:10)

We have choices to make: Will we serve God or Satan? Will we choose Life or Death? Will we choose Liberty or Libertinism? Will we choose Law or Chaos? Will we choose Peace or War?

Saint Michael defeats Satan

“Physical and social differences between North and South did not in themselves necessarily imply an irrepressible conflict. They did not mean that civil war had been decreed from the beginning by Fate. It came when problems arising from rapid growth and expansion got into such shape that they could not be solved by discussion, tolerance, and compromise…How this happened is not entirely clear. We only know that sectional rivalry in the nation turned into a struggle between…‘civilizations,’ between progress and backwardness, between right and wrong. Men ceased to reason, to tolerate, to accept compromise. Good men then had no choice but to kill and be killed.” ~ Avery Craven, The Coming of the Civil War (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1942, 1957, 1966; 1967) p. 1-2

They [the South] had thus become the victims of treachery. North and South were “two nations… as distinct as the English and the French; [their] annual meetings at Washington [were] not Congresses to discuss common interests, but conventions to contest antagonistic opinions, and to proclaim mutual grievances, and utter hostile threats.” ~ Avery Craven, The Coming of the Civil War (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1942, 1957, 1966; 1967) p. 299

“This writer saw Southern granaries full and jails empty, while in that free Europe which the free North aped famine stalked about, religious faith had departed, and jails and poorhouses were filled to repletion. Because of her slavish following of an unworthy example, the North was a land of ‘riots, trade-unions, strikes, and socialistic infidel philosophy.’ Food was scarce. Everyone was trying to live by his own wits. Even the North’s own people had passed the sentence of condemnation on it as shown by the fact that ‘the rich and the learned’ were ‘Socialists, the poor… revolutionists, rioters, anti-renters, Infidels, Mormons, Shakers, Greelyites, Fussionists, Owenites, Free Lovers, etc., etc.’ They had all given up the cause of democracy and were ‘trying disgusting experiments in new forms of society.’

The spread of isms in the North received much attention. Isms revealed the lack of stability–the summum bonum of all society!… All were intent on on overthrowing existing social systems, uprooting religion and remodeling the world on some utopian and impractical basis. All tended toward anarchy. All followed the direct and short road to infidelity.” ~ Avery Craven, The Coming of the Civil War (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1942, 1957, 1966; 1967) pp. 299-300

“A superior culture could not permit the foundations to be poisoned at the source.” ~ Avery Craven, The Coming of the Civil War (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1942, 1957, 1966; 1967) p. 301

University of Virginia

University of Virginia

“Young men at college in the North are constantly exposed to the danger of imbibing doctrines subversive of all old institutions, and of all the established tenets respecting religion, law, morality, property, and government. Every village has its press and its lecture room, and each lecturer and editor, unchecked by healthy public opinion, opens up for discussion all the received dogmas of faith. Nothing is considered as settled, nothing is too venerable or sacred to be controverted. The intellectual rashness of Youth, and their love of novelty, predisposes them to reject old opinions, and accept, without sufficient investigation, what is novel and startling. It is not safe or prudent to expose young minds to the contagion of the conventions, the lectures, and press of Northern Isms. They naturally hate restraint and gradually embrace doctrines which teach them to throw aside all restraint, and give free reigns to inclination, appetite and passion, is the highest virtue.

The great movement at the North, the great lesson, taught everywhere now in free society is that “Passional Attraction,” “Free Love,” “attractive Labor,” and “the Voluntary Principle,” are to be substituted for Law, Religion, and Government. It is but the failure and breaking up of free society, and may be alright and proper there, but would be quite out of place at the South, where society is healthy, vigorous, and flourishing.

The North fifty years ago, was eminently religious and conservative. Then it was well to send Southern youth to her Colleges. She is now the land of heresies, infidelities, and superstitions, and not fit to be trusted with the education of our sons and daughters.

As institutions of learning, the colleges of the South are equal to those of the North–the University of Virginia probably superior to any in the Union. Under these circumstances, it surprises us that moral, conservative and religious men at the North, who can afford it, do not send their sons to Southern schools. Their training would be moral, religious and conservative, and they would never learn, or read a word in school or out of school, inconsistent with orthodox Christianity, pure morality, the right of property, the sacredness of marriage, the obligation of law, the duty of obedience to government.”

Richmond Enquirer, December 29, 1855

Avery Craven

“Western men, especially, believed in the efficacy of governmental action for the achievement of social and moral ends. Both Church and State ought to serve democracy. Democracy was one with the will of God and the natural law. It guaranteed a moral order and when men and misinterpretations of constitutions violated that order appeal to the higher law might be made.” ~ Avery Craven, The Coming of the Civil War (Chicago: University of Chicago Press) 1942; 1957; 1967; p. 130).

Cicero

Cicero

“[N]one of the [Roman] lawyers doubted that there is a higher law than the enactments of any particular state. Like Cicero, they conceived of the law as ultimately rational, universal, unchangeable, and divine, at least in respect to the main principles of right and justice. The Roman Law, like the English common law, was only in small part a product of legislation. Hence the presumption was never made that law expresses nothing but the will of a competent legislative body, which is an idea of quite recent origin. It was assumed that ‘nature’ sets certain norms which the positive law must live up to as best it can and that, as Cicero had believed, an ‘unlawful’ statute simply is not law. Throughout the whole of the Middle Ages and well down into modern times the existence and the validity of such a higher law were taken for granted.” ~ George H. Sabine, A History of Political Theory (Third Edition, Holt, Rinehart, Winston, 1937, 1950, 1961) pp. 169-170).

king

Martin Luther King, Jr.

“How does one determine whether a law is just or unjust? A just law is a man made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas: An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law. Any law that uplifts human personality is just. Any law that degrades human personality is unjust.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr, Letter from a Birmingham Jail (16 April 1963).

Thomas Aquinas

Thomas Aquinas

“[A]ccording to Thomas [Aquinas], he [the ruler] may not take private property beyond what public need requires, though strictly speaking property is an institution of Human rather than Natural law. Above all, the rulership of one man over another must not take away the free moral agency of the subject. No man is bound to obedience in all respects and even the soul of the slave is free (a doctrine Aristotle would hardly have understood). It is for this reason that the resistance of tyranny is not only a right but a duty.” (George H. Sabine: A History of Political Theory, Third Edition (New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1937, 1950, 1961; 1965) pp. 255-256)

“The question, of course, is whether subjects shall be assumed to be dependent upon rulers, as children must be dependent upon their parents, or whether they shall be assumed to be responsible and self-governing.” ~ George H.

“America wanted solutions and democratically elected government wasn’t providing them. The country suffered from a “deep pessimism about politicians and government after years of broken promises.” David Finkle observed in the Washington Post Magazine that for most Americans “the perception of government is that it has evolved from something that provides democracy’s framework into something that provides obstacles, from something to celebrate into something to ignore.” Likewise, politicians and their proposals seemed stale and repetitive. Millions of voters gave up hope of finding answers. The “environment of apathy” Janos characterized as a precursor to a coup had arrived.” ~ Charles J. Dunlap Jr., The American Military Coup of 2012

Over 600,000 men died between 1861 and 1865 as Americans slaughtered one another en masse… why? Because there existed two fundamentally different visions of America… because there was a struggle between civilizations, or worldviews, which had opposite opinions regarding issues as fundamental as progress and backwardness, right and wrong, good and evil.

And this is the same moral and cultural situation America finds herself in today, some 150 years later.

“Benjamin Wiker argues that people on the political left are seeking to establish secularism as the official religion for the U.S. They are organizing the complete “de-Christianization” of Western Civilization, he says, and plan to replace personal faith with the collective dependence on the federal government. He discusses his theory with Washington Post writer Krissah Thompson.”

Burning of Chambersburg

Burning of Chambersburg

“When Chambersburg [Pennsylvania] residents learned on the morning of July 30, 1864 that yet another Confederate cavalry raid was approaching their city, most people were not overly concerned. Rebels had occupied the city in October 1862 and again in June 1863, soon before the Battle of Gettysburg. On both occasions Southern troops had behaved reasonably well, although they had burned military supplies and railroad equipment during Jeb Stuart’s raid of 1862. But on the morning of July 30, 1864, Confederate Gen. Jubal Early marched into Chambersburg and demanded $100,000 in gold or $500,000 in U.S. currency or he would burn the town. The ransom was not paid, and he burned the town, resulting in an estimated $1.7 million in damage.”

The Battle of Gettysburg

Gettysburg, Pennsylvania is 30 miles from Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. I currently live between these two towns; therefore, unlike most peoples, the memories – and brutal realities – of the US Civil War are always in the forefront my mind.

150 years ago, this year (= 2013), General Robert E, Lee set up his headquarters in Chamberburg, both before the battle of Gettysburg and afterward. The church I am a member of: Corpus Christi Catholic Church, was used as an emergency hospital after the battle in Gettysburg, where, after the battle, 8,000 men and 3,000 horses lay dead in the Pennsylvania summer sun, left for the citizens of Gettysburg to bury.

In 1938, participants of The Battle of Gettysburg got together for a reunion:

Sherman’s March to the Sea

The federal Union’s General Sherman and his scorched earth policy, which was mercilessly executed upon the South, was a war crime and a crime against humanity.

“The March to the Sea, the most destructive campaign against a civilian population during the Civil War (1861-65), began in Atlanta on November 15, 1864, and concluded in Savannah on December 21, 1864. Union general William T. Sherman abandoned his supply line and marched across Georgia to the Atlantic Ocean to prove to the Confederate population that its government could not protect the people from invaders. He practiced psychological warfare; he believed that by marching an army across the state he would demonstrate to the world that the Union had a power the Confederacy could not resist. “This may not be war,” he said, “but rather statesmanship.”

Should we not expect the federal government to do the same, today? They are doing so the world over, now, and will no doubt do the same, again, to the lovers of freedom, liberty, law, morals, and God in America, too… eventually.

America has been engaged in a struggle between good and evil, right and wrong, God and Satan since it’s beginnings, and continues to be engaged in this struggle today.

2012 electoral map looks like 1860 all over again: urban versus rural values.

Screen shot 2012-11-09 at 12.59.21 PM

“A century and a half after the Southern States seceded from the United States over the election of Northern Republican Abraham Lincoln a stark political difference remains apparent and is based on almost exactly the same geographic and cultural divides. In the 2012 US presidential race polling data shows that once again the North and South will face off against each other. The North will be aided by the Left Coast while the South and many of the Rocky Mountain and Western Plains States will join forces. This is despite massive demographic change in the form of a flood of Third World immigrants into the South (since the US opened up its border in 1965) and millions of Northern retirees settling in the Southern Atlantic States. In fact, the only Southern States (apart from Maryland and Delaware which still have Southern pockets but have been largely swamped with non-Southerners) which have any chance of voting along with the North are Florida and Virginia, two of the States most radically altered culturally and politically by Northern and foreign immigration. In vast areas of those States (and others such as North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Texas, etc) Southern people and culture has been largely replaced. It’s interesting to note though that despite this demographic deluge, the South still remains different.”

PHOTO – Albert Pike statue, Washington, DC

“Albert Pike is the only Confederate military officer or figure to be honored with an outdoor statue in Washington, D.C. The monument can be found in Judiciary Square.

“This bronze standing figure of Brigadier General Pike honors him as an author, poet, jurist, orator, scholar, soldier, philanthropist, philosopher, and 33 degree Freemason. The statue (Sculptor – Gaetano Trentanove) of Albert Pike is placed on a granite pedestal on which is seated a bronze figure of the Goddess of Masonry. He is dressed in a double-breasted vest and long coat. Congressman James Richardson from Tennessee, introduced an 1898 resolution: It called for the federal government to provide federal land to put up a statue honoring the Scottish Rite Masons Grand Commander. The statue was dedicated on October 23, 1901 in front of the Scottish Rite House of the Temple. In 1977 the monument was relocated to its present site between the Department of Labor building and the Municipal Building, between 3rd and 4th Streets, on D Street, NW.”

George Washington Lodge No. 143 in Chambersburg, PA

PHOTO – Oldest continuously used Masonic building in Pennsylvania, George Washington Lodge No. 143 in Chambersburg, PA. Built in 1823-24. One of the only buildings spared when Confederate soldiers burned the town in 1864.

“In 1864, Confederate Gen. Jubal Early marched into Chambersburg and demanded $100,000 in gold or $500,000 in U.S. currency or he would burn the town. The ransom was not paid, and he burned the town, resulting in an estimated $1.7 million in damage.

The buildings in the half block where the Masonic Temple stands were unharmed. According to fairly-well authenticated legend, a Confederate officer of high rank recognized the character of the Masonic Temple. He posted guards nearby who prevented any damage to the Temple and such nearby buildings.”

The Secret Architecture of Our Nation’s Capitol – The Masons and the Building of Washington, DC

“Author David Ovason proves Masons secretly consecrated the nation’s capital to the celestial Virgo as well as the “spirit beings” (= demons) whom occultists believe direct the affairs of humankind. In this fascinating read, Ovason establishes the significance of the link between our nation’s capital and the occult beyond any reasonable doubt.”

Anthony J. Hilder explores the connection between the Skull & Bones secret society at Yale and the American Catholic Church, which is run from Washington, DC by satanically influenced (and likely possessed) neocon warmongering satanists who are wolves in sheep’s clothing. These false teachers and false shepherds inside the Church have insidiously co-opted virtually the entire US Catholic Church as well as the entire anti-abortion movement, for the sake of temporal, earthly power.

“Investigative researcher and author S.K. Bain (Kent) along with writer, publisher, and musician Kris Millegan from TrineDay Publishing discuss The Most Dangerous Book in the World written by S.K. Bain. Kent reconstructs the occult-driven script for this ritual of mass terror. He discusses a hidden agenda: large-scale psychological warfare – built upon a deadly combination of black magic symbolism and high technology. In the first hour, we discuss the ritual, symbolism and astrology behind 9/11. Kent explains how Aleister Crowley was important to the orchestrators of this mass ritual. In the second hour, Kris addresses the mind control aspects of this event as well as the post-911 effects in the psyche of people. We’ll discuss more detailed symbolism related to 9/11. Kent elaborates more on the conspirators’ plot. Later, Bain warns of a possible new and even more horrifying act of mass terror, coming to Phoenix, AZ and the rest of the world. He explains how 2013 is an important date on the occult calendar as it is the start of a new great age. Kent expresses the plus side of occult rituals being exposed.”
